The Scissor Sisters are an American band that formed in 2001. Their style draws from disco, glam rock, pop and the club scene of New York City. While experiencing only limited mainstream success in their homeland of the United States, Scissor Sisters have been hugely successful in Europe, Canada, Australia, and particularly the United Kingdom, where Scissor Sisters have achieved a number of chart hits, with their debut album becoming best-selling album of 2004 in the UK.
Several fan societies have sprung up in the official forums. These include the “Jake Groupies”, “Ana Matronic Appreciation Society”, and the “Scissor Sisters Party Bus”, the latter two having spilled over to their own sites. The band have a close relationship with the fan community, even holding a small private gig for select forum members on August 14, 2005, at which a number of new tracks were previewed, and fans had the opportunity to meet the band and give birthday cards and presents to Ana Matronic. In the fan community, those fans who hold a special affinity for Ana are known as “nuns”.
In 2004, the gay members of the band, Jake Shears, Babydaddy, and Del Marquis, were honored in the Out 100, Out magazine’s List of the 100 Most Intriguing Gay People of the Year.
The band won a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist on March 28, 2005. On July 2, 2005, the group performed at Live 8. Their set included the previously unheard song “Everybody Wants the Same Thing”.In November 2006, they won the German media award Bambi in the category “Shooting Star”.
They have received some heavy attention in the United States by VH1 and magazines such as Out and Entertainment Weekly. They have also been interviewed on VH1’s website and Del Marquis has been interviewed by the music section of IGN.com. It is a little known fact that there are several tracks recorded by the band before their eponymous debut which were never released; these tracks have entered the fan community and, although sometimes difficult to find, can be obtained freely. These songs include “Someone to Touch”, “Doctor (I’m Only Seeing Dark)”, “Bicycling with the Devil”, “Electrobix”, “Monkey Baby”, a Billy Joel-Elton John-esque cover of Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out”, as well as demo versions of “Laura”, and “Filthy/Gorgeous”.
